ainsley: a lot to talk about this morning. steve: remember, we told you months when we talked about the dirty dossier. the dossier that had a whole bunch of stuff in it that, you know, people looked at it could that possibly be true about donald trump? now we know -- we don't know if the stuff in the dossier is true, although reporters have been trying to verify some of it for months, but we do now know who funded the dossier. that dossier was actually funded by hillary clinton and the dnc. how crazy is that? brian: this guy mark allies is representing the clinton campaign. he combined with the dnc to write a pretty big check. all in all the clinton campaign paid the g.p.s. fusion g.p.s., which is represented by perkins kohl, $5.6 million in legal fees. and the dnc paid $3.6 million. that to the g.p.s. hired this guy named christopher steele to go dig some stuff up. meantime as i think most
disturbing mark allies lied the whole time. he said he didn't do it. he did it. ainsley: they funded this fusion g.p.s. all the way until the election just a few days before the election they stopped paying them. brian: then the fbi was going to continue paying then when christopher steele's name leaked out they said we are not going to do it. think about this. president trump wins the election. the fbi goes i'm going to keep writing checks to this opposition research firm. steve: here's the thing as we know from the book shattered. we know on the night of her election loss, hillary clinton and john podesta and company, they decided, you know what? let's blame russia. now, we know that they were actually funding the russian dossier. ainsley: that's what the story is this morning. many of you have might say who cares what hillary clinton did. she is over and done with she is gone. i hear a lot of democrats saying that what's important here is that she is going after the president for this collusion and has been forever. turns out she is the one that colluded, according to
this source. brian: right. and "the washington post" runs with this story. not normally anti-clinton but a couple of things. so if you look into the russian probe and what was going on there, it's essentially was teed up by the clinton campaign. but, they did take it over from a republican -- from a republican source, maybe related to one candidate in particular. so, they didn't start with christopher steele and g.p.s. they picked up. steve: yeah. we had on our air a couple of days a looked like it all started with a fundraiser for jeb bush. well eventually jeb bush dropped out and they still had all this stuff. what do they do? next thing you know they sell it to the dnc. what's interesting though it does sound -- it wouldn't be shocking if the campaign -- her campaign then gave this to the fbi. and others. and how crazy would this be if this dossier, which was paid for by hillary clinton campaign and the dnc, if this was the rationale
behind unmasking all those names. remember, they started in the final days of the obama administration. ainsley: that opens up a whole another can of worms. steve: all based on this paid for by hillary clinton. unbelievable. brian: folks involved in the funding lied about it and sanctimony for a year "new york times" claims they were working on it kept getting denials from the elias and the clinton campaign. turns out it's true. brifn fallon the spokesperson says if i knew about this i would have used all of this willingly. he didn't know about it he is just a spokes person. ainsley: house overnight committee launching two new probes on her. another fox news alert. new calls on congress for special counsel to look into the controversial uranium one deal and its ties to the clinton foundation donations. brian: look laughing. explosive reports of russian bribery before the deal was approved. steve: oh, man, this is another story about russia and griff jenkins joins us now from our nation's
capital with the latest. >> that's right. two house committee launching probes into that controversial era uranium deal that gave russia control over 20% of uranium's reserves and possible ties to then secretary hillary clinton at the center of it whether an ongoing department of justice investigation at the time in 2010 uncovered information that would have prevented the deal, possibly violating national security. house intelligence committee chairman devin nunes says there are a lot of questions. >> one of the things as you know that we're concerned about is whether or not there was an fbi investigation. was there a doj investigation? and, if so, why was congress not informed of this matter? >> and this came to light last week, of course, when an fbi confidential informant attempted to come forward publicly through his lawyer but predicted from doing so by a gag order, that nondisclosure agreement with the department of justice, senate judiciary committee chairman who has
called for the informant's testimony says he hopes that it will be forthcoming. here's what grassley had to say. >> if it gets worked out so he can testify without any problems for him, we will take him up on that whenever that can be worked out. because he is very key. >> secretary clinton was on a book tour this week and she dismissed any notion of it. >> i would say it's the same bologna they have been peddling for years. and there has been no credible evidence by anyone. in fact, it's been debunked repeatedly and will continue to be debunked. >> here is the key, guys. pay attention to whether or not the release of that informant's nondisclosure gets done this week and what he has to say, which is key to all of this investigation. steve: absolutely. all right. griff, thank you very much. and, of course, the undercover informant initially just wanted the money back because he was working for the fbi but the fbi had him pay out of his
own pocket all that dough and then he said hey, i would like my money back since i was helping the government they said no, not going to give it to you. ainsley: that wasn't smart. brian: it happened on capitol hill yesterday. i have to admit it caught me by surprise. senator bob corker has a problem with the president. he was contender for president and vice president. i don't know if you heard about the president. he goes back at you personally. and this back and forth was baited by senator corker who is going -- who is leaving the senate in a year. and was picked up a little bit later by senator flake who d so much, i am not going to be running -- this will be my final year and i know exactly who to blame. president trump and his tone. ainsley: both of them were criticizing the president. these were two republicans, keep in mind. criticizing the president who is obviously a republican. listen to some of the collision from yesterday. >> to be clear, the anger and resentment that the people feel at the royal mess that we have created are justified. but anger and resentment are
not a governing philosophy. >> i think there were many people -- i was one of those -- that hoped that, you know, he would rise to the occasion as president and aspire to lead our nation instead of dividing it and, you know, it's obvious his political model and governing model is to divide. >> politics can make us silent when we should speak and silence can equal complicity. mr. president, i will not be complicit or silent. >> do you think the president is -- the nation? >> i don't think there is any question but that's the case just in the way that he deductconducts himself and goeso such a low level just, i do. steve: ultimately, keep in mind, jeff flake, one of the primary never trumpers in the u.s. senate. so, this is a big win for the president of the united states. this is exactly what steve bannon wanted as well. he wanted him gone.
now that open seat plan is for it to go to republican kelli ward. brian: it looks like it. someone might challenge kelli ward who was impressive last night with martha. steve: kelli ward does have the support of the united states. he has come out and supported her. flake is angry that the republican party has changed. ultimately, if you're quarterback and you are on a team and donald trump is the quarterback and you don't like the quarterback, get off the team. so that's what he's doing. brian: that analogy is correct. i would add something to it. but before getting off the team, go into the locker room and eviscerate the quarterback. i thought that yesterday. steve: he did that with his book a couple of months ago. ainsley: you might wonder why he is doing. this sarah huckabee sanders said he doesn't have the support in arizona according to polls. his approval rating in arizona jeff flake was 18% in arizona u the public policy polling said 62% of arizona voters disprove of him. he doesn't have enough votes.
the president tweeted about that. you don't have enough votes to actually win. steve: he actually, in a primary, keep in mind he is a sitting u.s. senator. he was trailing by 26 points as of the last poll. so he was not going to win re-election. brian: but it gives chuck schumer and company and all the enemies of the president and there are many, fuel to the fire. he went out and overwhelmed the president's message of tax reform yesterday and so far that i could see the president has not tweeted about jeff flake. steve: ultimately, perhaps, in arizona they will select somebody who would be on the same team as the president to move his policy stuff forward and that would be helpful to the people who work at 1600 pennsylvania avenue. brian: jillian is on our time, right? steve: she absolutely is. she was waiting for the happenedofhandoff. jillian: u.s. military believes someone may have betrayed four soldiers in
niger giving up location to terrorists. they stopped in a village for food and water after conducting an overnight reconnaissance mission. right after they left, they were ambushed. we are also learning the troops may have been on mission hunting a senior al qaeda member. disgraced army sergeant bo bergdahl will finally face a military judge today as his sentencing hearing begins. vets wounded in the search for him are expected to testify. master sergeant mark allen was shot in the head. corporal jonathan was hit by rbg and navy seal jimmy hatch wounded by fire after bergdahl walked away from his post inrgdahl's sentencing s been held up because his lawyer wanted the tossed over comments of president trump. dodgers take game one of the world series. >> high fly ball into left. off the bat is turner. at the wall, it's gone. jillian: the dodgers beating the astros 3 to 1. proving they can handle the
heat in more ways than one. how about it? last night's game goes down as the hottest world series game ever. game time temperature 103 degrees. the previous record a balmy 94 degrees during game six of the 2001 world series between the diamondbacks and yankees. brian: a series the yankees lost. brian: they have short sleeves. steve: that's why they sell beer during the game. ainsley: how many more games do we have. steve: best of civilian. brian: first one to four. i want to see both teams play well. ainsley: both of our players are in texas. brian: until we can get ainsley unstuck i will take it from here. warning for republicans. you screw up tax reform you will be out of a job. grover norquist with a history lesson next. steve: rumors have been swirling for months. is kid rock going to run for the senate? this morning he sets the record straight. ainsley: i love him.

...so he got quickbooks. it organizes all his accounts, so he can see his bottom line. ahhh...that's a profit. know where you stand instantly. visit quickbooks-dot-com. brian: president trump meeting with senate republicans tuesday focusing on passing tax reform at lunch. our next guest warns the g.o.p. congress must act on tax reform soon or they will suffer the same fate as the republicans back in the
1980s when they had big losses in the mid terms following the delayed reagan tax cuts. grover norquist joins us now. grover, what could president trump learn from president reagan's mistake in his first term? >> right. president reagan had a 25% cut in marginal tax rates. but, the democratic house of representatives insisted that it come in three years. 5% in '81, 10% in '82 and third 10% in '83. the recovery did not start until january first, 1983. and it was a great recovery. 4 million jobs created in 1983. one million jobs alone created in one month of october. however, the election was in '82. and in 1982, the republicans lost more than 20 house seats because the economy was so weak. had we gone to a immediate 25% across the board, we
could have had that recovery start a year earlier. so, fast forward to today, there was some talk, foolish talk, i hope, among some of the people crafting the tax bill that maybe you could delay the reduction of the corporate income tax from 35% to 20%. that would be a disaster because it would delay the strong boost that 20% down from 35% would give the economy. brian: maybe the rereoperate its of funds see if it's rocket fueling the economy. >> now, now, now right away. brian: grover, from what you know and you are as tapped in as anybody, you approve of the framework that you have seen so far and played a role in it. >> yes. brian: do you believe they could have got something done by november knowing the tax deduction on some states and bigger states are already pushing back on this plan? >> the answer is yes. they will get -- the outline of the tax plan, taking the business tax rate from 35%
to 20%, getting rid of the death tax. getting rid of the alternative minimal tax, cutting marginal tax rates across the board. doubling the standard deduction, all of these things will happen. there is some back and forth there are compromises that will be made. this will pass before the year is over, partially because the freedom caucus and the house has been working with leadership to craft a bill that everybody can be happy with, those are the people who weren't happy with the first effort at healthcare reform and delayed things. and on the senate side, everybody in the senate has said they're for tax reform, including rand paul, who voted against the budget, brian: wow. is for the tax >> much more unanimity. brian: senator rand paul coming in two hours i will ask him. grover norquist all over this tax reform on the outside tells us what's happening on the inside. thank you so much and happy
birthday. >> thank you. brian: 10 minutes now before the bottom of the hour. turns out the dirty dossier on donald trump was paid for buyer the clinton campaign and the dnc. unbelievable. we will tell you what this all means, tomi lahren, that's what she looks like. oh my gosh! how are you? well watch this. i pop that in there. press brew. that's it. look how much coffee's in here? fresh coffee. so rich. i love it. that's why you should be a keurig man! full-bodied. are you sure you're describing the coffee and not me? do you wear this every day? everyday. i'd never take it off. are you ready to say goodbye to it? go! go! ta da! a terrarium. that's it. we brewed the love, right guys?

been watching her book tour, tony, you know, tommy, you know that she has been playing the victim card where, you know, she blames james comey and, of course, she blames russia. now we know that this russian dossier she actually financed along with the dnc. that is delicious irony, isn't it? >> oh, it's amazing. well, she knew this all along. she just thought that she could get away with it because hillary thinks she can get away with everything. i can't wait for more information to surface. i'm glad we do have some outlets throughout that are trying to seek the truth and report it it's refreshing. i think we will find out more and more and more. boy, she is going to have a lot to talk bon that book tour. steve: we wouldn't have found out any of this if she had been elected president. do you think there would have been an investigation? i don't think so. ainsley: if she had become president, all of this would have been swept under the rug. this never would have been brought to light. brian: what about the tweets then? ainsley: the guy who worked for her his name is brian
fallon. this was his tweet. he says i regret i didn't know about christopher steele's hiring preelections. christopher steele is that british intelligence officer that fusion gps hired to dig up dirt on the president. i don't know about his hiring preelection. if i had, i would have volunteered to go to europe and try to help him. what's your response? >> my goodness. isn't it amazing how unapologetic they are. and i just, for me personally, i want to know more. the american people want to know more. this makes me more excited to see what her 33,000 deleted emails. i want the clinton campaign, hillary clinton, the dnc to finally be held accountable. i'm looking to the journalists in the mainstream media to do it. because we know that those that exist in the democratic party on the left, they're not going to do it. i look to these journalists and i say, listen, you claim to be such truth-seeking warriors. let's see it then. let's have you prove to us that you are indeed interested in the truth and not just about destroying donald trump. brian: exactly. senator jeff flake thinks he
was telling the truth yesterday when he went to the senate floor and says i will not run for another six years and donald trump essentially is not worthy to be president is dividing the country. that on the heels of senator corker saying something very similar. how much damage, if any, is done to the president with this? >> none. i say don't let the door hit you on the way out. that's the same for all of this g.o.p. establishment types that have been anti-trump that have been never trump from the get-go. i have said it before. they rode into office many of them on the coat tails of donald trump. they rode into office and many of them are in office and have been supported by their constituents because of an american first agenda that they were supposed to uphold. and now, of course, they continue their anti-trump narrative. their destroy trump narrative. you think they would be democrat. i would say don't let the door hit you on the way out. if you want to be a democrat, be a democrat. don't sit there and tell me you are republican. that's not what many. we will see a resurgence of america first. donald trump is going to lead the charge.
i can't wait to he see what's next, guys. steve: even though he unloaded at the president on the floor of the senate of the united states would you say this was a win for potus? >> absolutely. i think you're are going to see that first of all, this senator was already unpopular. let's be very clear about that. but those that stand there and he wanted to give some kind of a speech, they always use this excuse oh, i have to stick to my morals. no, that's ridiculous. you are not sticking to your morals. i'm so tired of hearing this narrative come out of these rino types. it's not about your morals. the fact is you are not successful. your agenda has failed. you are not doing anything to help president trump. and you need to go because you are not helping the american people. brian: yeah. both men though did vote with the president 90% of the time. they just don't seem to like his tonal. tomi lahren thank you so much. ainsley: president didn't endorse them now they are leaving. is that what draining the swamp is. brian: i'm not sure. steve: i think draining the watch getting people on your team to be people 100 chairs in the senate, as many as

campus, some of them have been well received. others not so much. brian: the ones who are doing it are the college republicans. they are trying to grow their organization, bring some speakers that they want to hear from and it's not going well. and the fact there is some backlash to these republicans, the republican club at columbia. and it's against the people that head it up. ainsley: the president of the club aristotle boosalis had this to say about it. they put up fliers, head of the republican, what is it called. steve: college republicans. ainsley: the board members of the college republicans. there is s. a picture of him. you need target him and harass him because is he inviting fascists to come and speak at the school. here is what he had to say. >> antifa has placed fliers all around our campus indicating who we are and our board members. the disgusting thing is that the university hasn't put out a statement condemning these actions. we are living targets right now on this campus. the fliers indicate for these people to come up and say something to us.
the scary thing is we don't know what these people will do to us. if i walk outside on campus, i could get attacked by any person. the university needs to stop these pir people from doing these actions because any student that are is just in general questioning ideas is a target on campus. steve: one of the things that apparently according to college reform.org, one of the things that the flier said regarding the college republicans, these students appear to be entitled rich kids padding their resumes at future jobs at hedge funds. let them know what you think about them. brian: every college republican ends one a hedge fund and they are horrible. ainsley: one member of antifa said they didn't want to give their name it's our duty to defend ourselves against their aggression. brian: i wonder if they put that on their resume? and do they show up to the first interview with a stalking mask? steve: we're going to go outside and go out to hot wheels hand she has the

backpack. can you explain to me what's going on? >> this is a relation of everyday border enforcement. the united states is still the draw. the ultimate draw for people that have dire situations where they are at. we are going to continue to witness this. steve: well, a lot of you emailed saying this is evidence you need to prove that our border is weak and we need a bigger, taller border wall. at msnbc reporter on the other hand is challenging that point of view. he says it's just the off sit. the piece was meant to show the border crossings are down big time even without trump's wall. so who is right? do we need the wall at all? we're going to have a little debate right now. former secret service agent and new york city police department officer and host of renegade republican dan bongino joins us. he is screen left. along with former consultant to the department of homeland security under the bush administration and democratic strategist joins us today from houston. good morning to both of you guys. >> good to be here. >> good morning. steve: all right.
mustafa, let's start with you. i think i said yesterday that video was proof that we needed a border wall. because the one we have got isn't working. what do you say? >> i think you make a good point. we need border security and we need smart border security. it's 2,000-mile long. if you try to produce a wall it would cost billions of dollars. and, you know, a lot of it goes through private land and many of those landowners don't want that wall there and so, we have got to come up with smart ideas and i feel like president trump, like all politicians has promised big and delivering less. quite bigly. we need to have border security but a wall does not work. it's unfortunate. steve: dan, what do you think? i think one of those 30-foot hunks of wall that they were prototyping right next to it would be much harder for those three people to get over. >> steve, that's absurd. i think what mustafa said with all due respect a wall wouldn't work. we just watched the wall we have, which is not a
deterrence by the way. it's just a suggestion. not work at all on camera with a left leaning network that's been trying to paint the picture that illegal immigration is, in fact, you know, going down. it's not a significant of a problem as it is. a wall will work. you are not able to leap over a 20-foot wall if we were to do one that's higher. can you make all the arguments you want about that. unless can you prove me through biophysics that we have super humans that can leap over a 20-foot wall, i will defer to the experts that say we need a better forced taller structure, it makes sense. >> a 20-foot wall requires a 22-foot ladder. it's somewhat impractical to that if you put up a physical structure you are not going to put a ladder that's 2 feet taller than it no matter how tall you build a wall people can climb over. what you really need is smart border security. you need men on the border you need surveillance cameras. you need to make sure that
people aren't coming through. a lot has been done already and we need to do a lot more. when we start with an unpractical solution erect a wall through private property, through water, you are not going tetoric and a ralr than policy. and it's too expensive and it's not going to work and we need to give up on it and move on. steve: dan, we have moved from members of the border patrol during the last administration they were essentially told to let people through. do you know what they got over in the united states, you are pick them up, you book them and then come back for your court hearing in a couple of months, they never show up. there is a new sheriff in town, so to speak. and things have changed. >> yeah. that was catch and release. and really what it was was not an immigration policy at all because people as you accurately stated would never show up for their court dates. what i find fascinating about this, ament, steve and even my atf if a's words is one now they are concerned about the cost of the mall.
the democrats ran up and the dent and deficit under obama. >> the republicans that rab -- it's the republicans that have been running up the debt. you know that and i know that why do you mislead the american public. >> so we can both agree, mustafa debt is a problem. that's not this segment. it was a bigger problem under obama. we can all agree on that if you know your numbers which you should have come prepared with secondly, immigration is interesting that this is the only crime in the united states where we discuss the crime in terms of feelings for the perpetrator and not the victim. there are american victims here with immigration. we need to recognize that. steve: hadn't thought about it that way. daniel and mustafa. >> and we should have better ways to secure the border. steve: yes, sir. you said that earlier. all right. let's see where it goes from here. guys, thank you for joining us. meanwhile it is 6:50 in new york city. he saved dozens of his fellow soldiers during the vietnam war. he finally received a medal from the president. todd piro having breakfast with friends in knoxville,

corker is doing is really just a publicity stunt. why do you say that? >> i think it's a publicity stunt because it's just kind of jumping to conclusions. and, you know, in the beginning, he was on trump's side and now he is not. you have to wonder what behind the scenes has changed. just seems like he has jumped off the train for no reason. todd: let's go to syria. sierra is a student as well. she says i think the president is doing a pretty good job. why do you say that? >> i feel like he has the right motives for like our country and he is going in the right direction. and sometimes though what he says might be a little bit too much. todd: you said you are not a fan of the tweeting. >> not too much. i think it's like okay at times. but sometimes i think he needs to quiet down in certain areas. todd: understood. we are going to go over to tim. tim is the mayor of knox county and he is a very good friend of bob corker. he says, bob, have you got
to stop it. >> i don't know about very good friend but i appreciate you saying that. no, i think he needs to focus on legacy items. i think he needs to focus on tax reform. people want that. that's what they elected this president for. that's what the people bought into. they need to build the wall. and they need to work on the healthcare. and fix the v.a. those are the things that we talked about. energy independence, things like that on the campaign trail. that's what elected this president, i think. didn't elect hillary clinton. and anything other than that, i think is -- it's just a big distraction. todd: thanks. that's it from knoxville we will check in with you in the next hour for now back to new york city. steve: thank you very much, todd. ainsley: we love knoxville. thank you, todd. steve: bombshell evidence shows hillary clinton's campaign and the dnc paid for that so-called dirty dossier as two new house investigations open into her email and the russian uranium deal. ainsley: congressman ron desantis is leading the charge. he is going to join us live. the newest medal of honor

mine. steve: if it's wednesday we must be talking politics. we start with a fox news alert. as it turns out over the last week or so, we have heard the president of the united states say hey, who at the fbi and the department of justice, who -- how much did we pay and who funded that so-called dirty dossier? well, yesterday, in an exclusive report in the "the washington post," we now know that that woman right there, her campaign and the dnc paid for the dossier that said donald trump did all sorts of crazy stuff. brian: $5.6 million from the clinton campaign she wrote in legal fees as well as 3.6 million for the dnc. they combined to give g.p.s. fusion g.p.s. all that money in order to hire christopher steele, who has connections with the fbi as well as the mi-5, to go into russia and find out about any type of trump ties. believe it or not though, they didn't start this investigation. some republican started it. i assume when.
steve: opo research. brian: republican lost and democrats picked it up in june of 2015. ainsley: hillary lost and even democrats are saying she needs to go away. here's the thing if she is so threatened by russia and trying to prove there was collusion with president trump and then it turns out she was the one colluding, that's an eye opener. that's something we need to be talking about. steve: no kidding. the other thing is there a possibility the barack obama administration knew the source of this? did they know that this particular dossier was the result of hillary clinton's campaign? i saw an item and we looked it up, this is unbelievable. three barack obama administration officials, who worked side by side with the president, lawyers, have since returned to that law firm that was responsible for hiring fusion gps.
and one of the guys, robert bauer, who is a partner, had worked with the president, barack obama, he is, it looks like, married to anita dunel who used to be the white house comungs director. communications director. do you think the obama white house and hillary clinton and her campaign and the dnc were funding the dirty dossier? we don't know. but it sure looks curious. the current leadership is saying we weren't in office then. that was the past leadership. this is actually the communications director's statement tom perez, he is head of the dnc. and the new leadership of the dnc were not involved in any decision-making regarding fusion gps. nor were they aware that perkins coy was working with the organization. steve: that's the law firm. brian: so, by the way, the reason why this could be coming out october 24th, perkins called a law firm fusion gps release -- get released from their dflt agreement. we have got to talk. keep in mind g.p.s. was subpoenaed to come out.
they took the fifth. so maybe they are speaking to robert mueller, but they are not speaking to the senate or house committees. steve: the reason we know so much about this law firm and according to the "the washington post," which broke this story it is standard practice for political campaigns to use law firms to hire outside researchers in the case of fusion g.p.s. to make sure their work is protected by attorney-client privilege. that way if, you know, there's a fire wall between the campaign and whoever does the actual dirty dossier in this particular case. brian: why the way, this guy mark allies, he flat out lied to the "new york times" and to the "the washington post" when asked directly did you pay for this? he said no. vigorously denied it. what else are they vigorously denying that is not true? steve: all right. meanwhile, so that story broke late in the day. earlier in the day, there were a couple of u.s. senators who are, let's be honest, they're never trumpers. jeff flake, the senator from arizona, and bob corker, the senator from tennessee, they
both took on the president. they're establishment republicans. if you missed what they said, here's a little bit, including the fact that jeff flake announced, you know what? i'm not running for re-election. listen. >> to be clear, the anger and resentment that the people feel at the royal mess that we've created are justified. but anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy. >> i think there were many people -- i was one of those -- that hoped that, you know, he would rise to the occasion as president. and aspire to lead our nation instead of dividing it and, you know, it's obvious his political model and governing model is to divide. >> politics can make us silent when we should speak and silence can equal complicity. mr. president, i will not be complicit or silent. >> do you think the president is -- the nation? >> i don't think there is any question but that's the case just in the way that he conducts himself and he goes
to such a low level, just -- i do. brian: senator corker is not accomplishing anything that he set out to do. he is a conservative that wants tax reform. he wants to see some type of stimulus package, whatever he wants to do he is hurting his own cause. have you got to ask yourself are you there to represent the people of tennessee and republican party or there to settle scores because you don't like the president, you don't like his tonal. and senator jeff flake, to his credit, wrote a book about it. he's not happy with the tone. but they both, for the most part, agree with the president on policy. 90 plus% of the time they vote together. they probably agree on the tax reform, too. ainsley: well, senator flake, the president didn't endorse him, so he is mad. they have been sparring because he wrote the book. and the president is endorsing kelli ward for his seat. if you look at the polls, 16% or actually his approval rating this past summer was 18% in arizona. and public policy polling
said 62% of arizona voters disapprove. he wasn't even going to win. now he is saying i'm stepping down and wanting to take the president down with him. steve: you look at arizona supported donald trump overwhelmingly. the people of arizona were not buying what jeff flake was selling. so he's going to step out. of course, this is delightful to steve bannon. in fact, a source close to mr. bannon, who is now trying to get as many never trumpers out of the u.s. senate said this. with the surrender one never trumper jeff flake it's clear mitch mcconnell's vision for the republican party is an abject failure. americans demand new leadership. the rest of the establishment failures need to leave. brian: last night on the 10:00 show i thought lindsey graham would be the perfect guest. he has sparred with the president. he wants to get things done anyway. he actually likes the president even though the president in the past has called him a disgrace. mr. zero percent. ainsley: gave out his phone number. brian: lindsey graham came
back and said i didn't vote for the president. in the end he said i like the guy his policies work for me. as much as i like those two senators i still like the president. i'm all in. listen. >> most people are working for a living. most people don't know who bob corker and jeff flake are most people want president trump to succeed. a lot of people don't like his tweeting and his punching down and kicking every bark dog, mostly republicans don't like that. but i'm going to be around him for the rest of his term, i hope. he has got a chance to do big things on immigration. i think donald trump has the best chance of fixing a broken immigration system better than obama and bush. so let's do what we got sent up here to do. i have got a job to do. i was elected to get something done. i want this president to be successful. because god knows we need change in this country, and donald trump beat us all with a simple message. let's make america great again and drain the swamp. at love us up here need to do a little soul searching as to why we are so unpopular.
steve: looks like if jeff flake was listening to lindsey graham, he probably pulled the plug out of the swamp a little bit for himself yesterday. brian: quick note, senator graham did say that the president singled out john mccain and said senator i agree with you 100 percent. got to rebuild the military. i appreciate everything you are doing. the tone in the room was very jovial and happy and laid back despite what senator corker said. steve: got a couple of standing ovations. ainsley: people were wondering if flake and corker were going to team up against the president in 2020. he said i won't go there. that's a long way away. we are hearing from both sides. penny said good riddance, amazing flake found his voice where was it during the obama administration? #drain the swamp. steve: meanwhile lindsey probably not lindsey graham tweeted flake's speech will go down in history as lifting bar on decency and integrity in congress today. thank you so very much. brian: he was so emotional in giving it. brian: let us know.

senator chuck grassley is asking for that after explosive reports revealed yesterday the russian bribery before the deal was approved. now florida g.o.p. congressman ron desantis has been on this for a while and he sits on the house oversight committee and joins us now. senator, i read this in peter schweizer's book last year. what's happening now that has everybody intrigued?
>> you are right, brian, this was intriguing last year as well. what's happened recently was the existence or the knowledge of the existence of a confidential fbi informant who was working in this russian uranium community in washington helping them basically peddle influence. he realized this was illegal. he went to the fbi at the very beginning and they wanted him to stay in the game and be a confidential informant. so that happened in 2009. the deal that approved uranium one didn't happen late until 2010. that was a controversial deal anyways based on substance because you have russia who is a hostile country getting access to 20% of our uranium reserves. nobody seems to have known in the congress or perhaps the sippous board that approved it that this ongoing racketeering and bribery scandal was undergirding the whole uranium one thing. that just makes that much more explosive. but, of course, you still have the millions of dollars
that went from uranium one connected entities to the clinton foundation. the famous $500,000 payment to bill clinton in russia for 20-minute speech. so you have all those things. we think this confidential informant, who wants to testify, he needs to be released from this nondisclosure agreement, that he could help link some of this stuff, provide some meat on the bones so that we can finally get the truth for the american people. brian: you know what jeff sessions should be helping you here. he is the attorney general. he has the lock on the justice department. unlock this guy and let him come forward and tell the story. i don't understand what the problem is there was another revelation yesterday put forward by the hill and "the washington post" that this dossier that has so much controversial swirling about it was actually financed by the dnc and by the clinton campaign to the tune of over $8 million from 2015 until late 2016. what are your thoughts on this? what changes now? >> well, i will tell you, it's just bizarre. the media spent so much time
on trump, russia so-called collusion. still many months later, no evidence of that. but, if you look, not only with the uranium one, but then in this instance, how the democrats have really worked with russian nationals for a variety of reasons. and this is something that people affiliated with fusion gps denied repeatedly and it turns out they weren't telling the american people the truth. they were involved with this. brian: are they telling a different story to robert mueller? because they weren't -- they took the fifth with you, right? >> right. so they took the fifth before the committee. i don't know what they're telling mueller. quite frankly, i don't know what the scope of this investigation is because it wasn't really clear from the beginning when he was appointed. so he may very well be in it. i think that's been a problem with the mueller investigation. i don't think it's focused. brian: we're going to find out. sooner or later we will get to an end, a bottom i think. congressman ron desantis have you been all over. this very curious to see what's going to happen from here. thanks so much. >> thank you. brian: straight ahead

combat began and it was to continue for the next 96 hours, sir. brian: what did you do during that time, one of which you got shot, you got hit. but you didn't stop doing what? >> i didn't get shot, sir. i was hit with a rocket fragments. steve: um-huh. >> i didn't stop doing anything but my job. i was responsible for the health and welfare, i guess, of the 135 men that were with me. and as they went down, i went to their aid. that was what i was supposed to do. ainsley: captain, i'm reading about what you -- you were credited with tweeting 60 to 70 wounded. you saved a crewman shot in the neck. you were hit by shrapnel as mentioned by brian. you were hoisting men on your back while you were firing shots at the enemy with the other hand. steve: unbelievable. ainsley: all the americans
that went on that secret mission came out alive because of you. when you were there that day and you are firing at the enemy and you are saving lives, did you think this is my last day? what goes through your mind when you are in that situation? >> well, to be honest with you, ma'am, i have said this before, i don't really remember doing that. in fact, about, i would say, half of what has been eyewitness reported that i did, i honestly consciously can tell you i don't remember doing it because i was so focused to going to the wounded and rendering aid -- and you have to understand my job was being the medic. and i was not concerned about the perimeter. that's what the other guys were doing so when somebody went down, somebody got hurt, that was my responsibility to go to their aid to make sure i could render what i could to get them back. and that was important because because you had to
do something -- it sounds kind of funny, even though they were hurt, we needed them back on the perimeter. so, i went to them, did what i could, to ease whatever the difficulty was at the time that they had, so hopefully, they could get back on the perimeter and continue the fight. steve: right. well, certainly, captain, because of your heroism, there are a lot of americans who made it out that day. thanks to that. according to foxnews.com, the mission that you mentioned a moment ago was so secret for more than four decades you never spoke about it to anybody not even the people you served with i know some of those people you saved were instrumental in making sure that people understood what you did. it took 47 years for you to receive the medal of honor yesterday. what was that like when the president of the united neck? >> it was just -- it was somewhat bewildering that in the fact in my own mind,
sir, i think -- i think i have been overrecognized for what i did. i think there are far -- to me, the real heroes you can go to the wall and read their names. because i focused on what i was trained to do, and did i it to the best of my ability because, i honestly feel if i had not done what i did, i would have failed not only myself but my fellows in the army. and i had a personal responsibility to all three of us. brian: but the men who served wanted to make sure you had this day and they didn't give up until you had it. and president trump was there to do it. u.s. army captain gary michael rose. thanks so much. congratulations. and i appreciate you sharing your story with us. ainsley: captain rose, your humility, that's why you are a hero. we salute you. thank you for making some sacrifices for our great country. >> thank you, ma'am, i appreciate it thank you. ainsley: thank you. >> thank you very much.

put forth without precision or arithmetic. clear enough however to complain some combination of ignorant, disenginous and dishonest. joining us to respond is kevin has set. i'm not thinking mr. summers is on board. why do you think he has that point of view? he is not without credentials. >> well, you know, i think that we have all seen the coarsening of america's discourse. it's a little bit surprising, perhaps to see it in economics. i guess there is no place that's immune. the council of economic advisors was founded in the
1946 employment act. my job is to do what, you know, soldiers and other people that serve their country do show up every day and do my job and my job is to study the economy. figure out why the mom right now who is sending her kid to school is going to go to work and not take home much more than she got 10 years ago and help the president to think about what do do to address that. that's what i have been doing. showing up every day and doing my job. if you look at the substance of the criticism that folks have given me, i haven't seen any substance yet. it's just name calling and things like that. ainsley: i know you recently spoke to the tax policy center left group and right leaning group. i know that the tax policy center, the left group, they went through all of the numbers, and they weren't happy with it. they said the 5.1 trillion-dollar revenue loss is a big problem. what was your -- when you look at their criticisms, what's your response to it? because a lot of americans have that same -- they are wondering what we're going to do about this revenue loss. >> look, president trump knows how important it is that we get tax reform for the people that are watching
your show right now again because their incomes need to go up. what he did is he got together with the leaders of congress and they set up a process where they said here are our main objectives, here are our core principles. we want a tax cut on the middle class. we want lower corporate rates so that businesses stop locating their plants overseas a few of these details we will let congress work out. steve: right. >> in order to come up with a bill that they can pass through the senate. you might have noticed that's kind of hard to do this year. right? i think that the president designed, along with the members of congress a really optimal strategy to get bipartisan cooperation. so then what happened is the tax policy center swooped in and they made all sorts of assumptions about stupid things that guys would ultimately agree to, which are just fictional. and then they put out a hit piece. i just felt like their attempt to stop the tax reform process, before it even got going was wrong. i went there and i told them about it. steve: okay, kevin, in the building behind you, sits the president of the united states. and he was on his smart phone moments ago. he just tweetedst tax cut in u.s. history,
great support from so many sides. big winners will be the middle class and business and jobs. and that effectively you and the president are on the same page. but there are members of the republican party who are not happy because tomorrow they are going -- in the house, they are going to vote on the senate's budget blueprint, and essentially they are going to say okay, we're going to pass it. it's got a whole bunch of spending in it. freedom caucus doesn't like the extra spending. we're going to pass it though to get the ball going with tax reform. but here's the problem. they have no idea what's in tax reform right now because you guys have kept so many of the details secret. >> actually, i disagree with that respectfully. i think that they know that the president wants a top corporate rate of 20%. he knows that on the business side they want expensing. steve: right, those are the general things. >> what we don't know. excuse me. steve: so, kevin, how many tax brackets will there be. >> if you count the zero bracket there will be four. but if congress decides that they need an extra top rate,
no, but this is how the legislative process works. the president is not dictating to people every detail of the bill because that's not how our address demoy works. the senate is studying it to see what they can do that comes up with enough levers to get the thing through congress. that's the right process for a president to work. that's how the '86 tax act happened and that was really the great last moment in tax reform. brian: you used to get george bush and ronald reagan got democratic votes. i think they are going to want this millionaire tax bracket. how do you feel about that? those people making over a million dollars would not get the 39 to 35% break, roughly a 4% break. can you digest that? >> i think if you look at the blueprint that's been agreed to, that it agrees to a top rate of 35%. which is a big reduction 39.6 that's there. the president and the white house team said if you guys need to compromise by picking a different rate, we're open to looking at it. that's where we are right now. steve: okay. so let the negotiations
begin. that's why there are a lot of details. >> it's so urgent, folks. people need a pay raise out there. brian: larry summers hates it kevin hasset defends it and the beat goes on. kevin, thanks so much. ainsley: jillian has headlines for us. good morning. jillian: good morning to you at home as well. the obama justice department has long been accused of steering settlement funds away from conservatives. now congress says they can prove it. the house judiciary committee claims they have a smoking gun email showing how eric holder and the doj intentionally diverted money away from conservative causes. >> the donations provisions were structured to aid the obama administration political friends and exclude conservative groups. >> attorney general jeff sessions has since put an end to the so-called slush fund tactics. ivanka trump opening up about how she deals with all the attacks on the first family. >> i would be disingenuous
to say if ha that it didn't angeghts me any. i think though at the end of the day, the real people suffering in this country are not me and my family. we can take it. it's the millions of americans we saw across this country who are addicted to opioids. ainsley: the first daughter telling sean hannity if her family has to take a few blows when advocating for the people, they are honored to do it. liberals have a bold new strategy to stop president trump scream helplessly at the sky. >> donald's j. trump is now president of the united states. [boos] ainsley: this is not a joke. according to facebook invites, more than 4,000 people nationwide are planning to scream their lungs out at the sky as a protest on the anniversary of president trump's historic election win on november 8th. everybody is laughing. i can't serious.
people are forming watch parties for the event. surveillance video catching the moment an armed bank robber is slammed to the ground by a good samaritan nearly twice his age. the 63-year-old man from pennsylvania wrestling the money and the gun right out of the thief's hands. and then chasing him out of the bank. he was arrested later. what do you think about the screaming at the sky thing? [screams] steve: here is a question for you. will it will when he was declared president or will it be all day long? jillian: let's hope it's not all day long. brian: i think it was around 9:00. ainsley: if do you that in new york no one will pay attention. jillian: philadelphia is one of the cities. boston or chicago, maybe. brian: my feeling is on that bank robbery that guy is a wrestler. jillian: you think. so. brian: everybody is a wrestler, it's the law. i bet you he is a wrestler. jillian: i put my money on it. steve: two points. jillian: you sore confident,
brian. brian: thanks, jillian. senator rand paul met with president trump on tax reform. what did they talk about? we will ask senator rand paul what they talked about. ainsley: we will check back in with todd piro. he is having breakfast with friends in knoxville, tennessee. ♪ miscount all the beers you drank ♪ back where i come from ♪ back where i come from ♪ with advil, you'll ask what twisted ankle? what muscle strain? advil makes pain a distant memory nothing works faster stronger or longer what pain? advil. we're on a mission to show drip coffee drinkers, it's time to wake up to keurig. wakey! wakey! rise and shine! oh my gosh! how are you? well watch this. i pop that in there. press brew. that's it. so rich. i love it. that's why you should be a keurig man! full-bodied. are you sure you're describing the coffee and not me?

regard to his communications with the president. why? >> correct. i think that we live in a republican state. and he is our republican representative he should be representing our people more accurately instead of his own political views. todd: you saw the president's tweet from a few moments ago about senators corker and flake. what's your response to that. >> i have to agree with trump on this one. i think that they are going to act sorry and winded because they would not have won because we are a republican state and i don't think they would have had a chance. todd: understood. tori, thank you. now, before we go to mom, penny, tori is an an accounting major. get this, even though she is full on conservative, big trump supporter, she is not a fan of corporate tax cuts. an accountant not a fan of corporate tax cuts. so we're going to get her mom's opinion on that. penny, you say you are a trump supporter. you say my daughter is wrong. >> exactly. our family owns a small business and we need those

name a few. second story, did you know that the number of new claims for jobless benefits, people thrown out of work they claim benefits. that's the lowest number since 1973. steve: wow. >> not reported. did you know that 1.5 million fewer people are now on food stamps compared to january the 20th when the president was inaugurated. did you though that? no that's not been reported. president trump is putting $5.3 trillion has been added to the value of american companies since the election in november last year. did you know any of this? steve: and we know why because a lot of the mainstream media doesn't want to give the president credit. but, i heard an analyst, i believe on your show yesterday, talk about how if tax reform does not go through, the market doesn't necessarily tank because it has gone up because of the cutting of the red tape and the regulations and stuff like that. if we get tax reform, that's something else. >> yes. look, we have got 3% growth in the economy right now. 3%. that's pretty good after 8 years of 2%.
3%. brian: probably drop a little after the hurricanes. >> the hurricane also affect it. you will see some pretty bad numbers in the immediate future. but then it recovers. you might get 4% growth next year. ainsley: and the dow? >> the bottom line is profits are very, very strong. on profits under pin the stock market. that's why you've gone up so much on the market. 23400. nobody saw this coming. brian: yet our deficit did grow, right? >> yes. brian: grow by 60 billion? >> no, in this fiscal year it will grow by $666 billion. that's all baked into the obama cake. that was inevitable. and it will probably go up some more in the next few months. it will go up. steve: takes a while to unwind. >> it takes a while to unwind. that is the downside. and you will see increased deficits. but, please, don't ignore what is becoming an almost booming economy. brian: are you going to talk about in t. in your show or mostly music?

they went after the president yesterday. in the case of senator corker president went right back. he did not touch jeff flake but, a lot of theatrics. ainsley: we want to talk to senator rand paul about that. first talk about the news that broke later in the night yesterday. good to have you with us. ar yes. morning. ainsley: wonderful. we want to get your reaction about the russian reversal. sources say that hillary clinton's campaign teamed up with the dnc to help pay for the dossier on president trump. what is your reaction? >> amazes me for a year the democrats have been wining, whining, say they lost to the russians. it is their subterfuge, their buying dossier. there are rumors the leaks went to wikileaks from all clinton emails came from the democrats as well. everything blamed on republican looks like they were the ones responsible for. steve: sure.
senator, remember a couple months ago revealed donald trump, jr., had a meeting with these people with, a russian connection in hopes of finding dirt on hillary clinton. ultimately doesn't sound like they got any dirt on hillary clinton but at same time she was financing the dossier about his father. brian: five million. >> campaigns do opposition research on both sides but the problem is it is distracting the whole country. we're spending millions and millions of dollars on committee investigations, special prosecutors, all because hillary clinton can't admit she lost because she was a bad candidate. brian: right. senator, lastly there was republican they say started this investigation with fusion gps. it was hillary clinton, and dnc spent money to keep it going. do you know who that republican was? >> it wasn't me. i don't know who it was. it might have been one of other primary candidates. there were 16 of them. all i can say it wasn't me.
brian: talk about some of drama yesterday. first reaction senator corker going at president trump before the meeting on taxes. senator jeff flake did this on senate floor after the meeting. let's listen. >> there are times when we must risk our careers in favor of our principles. is such a time. to announce there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by a president right or wrong is not only unpatriotic and servile but morally treasonable to the american public. reckless, outrageous, undignified behavior has become excused and countenanced as telling it like it is when it is actually just reckless, outrageous and undignified. when such behavior emanates from the top of our government, it is something else. it is dangerous to a democracy. brian: senator paul, who is right?
is he doing, is the president dangerous to democracy? >> you know i have a different take on this. you know i try to keep it more about policy. look, i've been willing to go stand toe-to-toe with the president when i disagree with him on policy but i'm willing to support the president when i agree on policy like cutting taxes. i think president is one of the boldest people we had in the white house on cutting taxes. i will support him there. that doesn't mean i will always support him. i don't make it about personality or someone has less of a perfect character than they do. that is little pot kelling kettle black. oh, somehow i'm so perfect i can criticize another person's character. one of the media missed on all this, keep saying senator so-and-so is conservative, why is there such disagreement. because we made this about personalities less about policy. i have had honest disagreements
with president because i'm still on very good terms with the president because i treat the person and office with respect. i'm willing to go toe to toe if there is policy disagreement. i think we need to be concentrating, not forget people elected us we were supposed repealing obamacare which didn't work out and supposedly for lower taxes. i'm all in lower. i will work with the president on it. i will try to avoid any ancillary things that are less important than the policy. ainsley: he was joined on the floor by senator john mccain and mitch mcconnell and he said this, we witness ad speech of a very fine man. what is your message to those four individuals, those four senators. >> look everybody has their own opinion what is the best decorum, how we should present ourselves and how we should get our act with the country and public at large. i'm not here to criticize any of them really for what they think is the best way but i think
actually it would be better if we concentrate on policy. i think people at home would like a tax cut. people at home would like to keep american jobs here and try to lower corporate taxes so the companies don't go overseas. i think to the american people, that is more important than all the personalities. this is "people" magazine saga. ought to be more about policy and what is the best way to lead the country. ainsley: frankly if you don't live in tennessee or don't live in arizona you don't know much about the senators anyway. no sure. brian: steve: 30 nine minutes ago president tweeted the reason flake and corker dropped out of the senate race is very simple. they had zero chance of being elected. so wounded. senator, you mentioned like budget blueprint is the next stop. looks like a fast track on taxes. there are a lot of details we don't know about. we know the president and y'all want to simplify the middle
class tax break, the rest of the details, and there will be a lot of them, we don't know. >> the details are important. that is why i've been advocating very loudly last couple weeks to the president, personally at president and personally to the budget director at large if you keep middle rate, 25% the same, get rid of big deductions you could have tax increase. president assured me won't let that happen. told his people not to let it happen. i will watch and advocate as it goes through the committee process and house and senate. if you have a big tax increase on those in the middle, tax reduction on bottom and top that is a problem. i will still continue to advocate, biggest boldest tax cut we get. return money to rightful owners, those who earned it and the economy will boom. the president believes, i agree with him on this, you could have four, 5% gdp growth. under rake began we had 7% gdp growth one time under a tax cut.
if you return money to those that earn it, to productive use. the government is not productive use. if you return money to the people you will get growth like we haven't seen in decade. brian: senator, give me idea, if i'm middle class, watching right now, what deductions if you think are eliminated will hurt those in the middle? >> i am open to eliminating deductions as long as you adjust the rate down. for me the number one conservative principle, just about everybody will get a reduction in their taxes. if you tell me in the middle, oh, your taxes are going up we have the great reform, i'm less inclined to believe it is a great reform if my taxes to up. first principle, make sure everybody's taxes go down of the president is with me on this. the reason you have to ride herd on people, there are some consumed it would be great policy to get rid of state income tax deduction, and i could be persuaded of that only if taxes are going down overall,
you tell me it's a great policy but we're raising taxes, that is a problem. i advocate with the finance committee, ways and means anybody that listens in washington, make sure number one conservative principle is across the board tax cuts. brian: can we get this by thanksgiving? >> i'm very hopeful we get it done this fall. i don't know about thanksgiving. sooner the better. you saw what happened with the obamacare, more weak got and more people forgot what meant to be republicans. forgot the promise to repeal obamacare. i'm afraid if we discuss taxes to death, some republicans may forget they're for less taxes. steve: senator paul. a lot to do. you better go work. >> thanks. ainsley: jillian has a fox news alert. jillian: begin with the fox news alert. the u.s. military believing someone may have betrayed our four u.s. soldiers killed in niger giving up their location in terrorists. they stopped for a village for

they paid for it. >> well, what is interesting is the fact that they admitted to paying for it. ask yourself why it is they admitted paying for it? they admitted this because bank records of fusion gps have been subpoenaed. this would be some way of blocking the subpoena or we don't need it anymore. the fact fusion gps worked for criminal entities and paid off journalists. that is why they're trying to stop the bank records being sorts of things. er. >> artists don't have privilege. they're not lawyers yet they're trying to go down that route. i know so personally given what they did in my case. steve: okay, thor, tell us what they did to you. >> i was involved whistle blowing a corruption case in venezuela. the group of a businessmen
venezuelan who started a company called derwik associates. this company received $3 billion from the venezuelan government to build faulty power plants. they stole $2 billion plus from the government of venezuela. when they got caught, what do we do? let's destroy whistle-blowers, destroy the people speaking bus. they hired fusion gps created a fake dossier with false information and they shopped dossier around to attack me, similar dossiers to other people ho had done the same thing. they shopped it around. they took it to the "wall street journal" "the wall street journal" took nothing to it. they paid a out of work journalist ken silver steen in washington to public some of these allegations. steve, the allegations were so outrageous, defense is very difficult when people accuse you of being embezzler, heroin
addict, pedophile. they have done this sort of thing before. they get paid to destroy people and they do so on behalf of criminals. steve: does it look to you, its speculation on your part because you don't know what was happening with hillary and dnc because they created a fake dossier about you, they probably know how to do one with donald trump? >> there is a, list of people they have done this to. they have done this to bill browder, human rights campaigner in russia, about russia. steve: this is nothing new? this is how they operate? >> no. this is how they make their money. you see, you condition take a career in journalism which was abated sell it to the highest bidder for credibility. they pay off to journalists. i can't discuss exact context of the steele dossier. it is in my mind a pattern of
smear artists. that is what fusion gps is. my hope the committees continue to do the work subpoena bank records. steve: thor, thanks for telling us how you were targeted by fusion gps. m m tums chewy bites. bp uses flir cameras - a new thermal imagining technology - to inspect difficult-to-reach pipelines, so we can detect leaks before humans can see them. because safety is never being satisfied. and always working to be better. yeah, i got some financialbody guidance a while ago. how'd that go? he kept spelling my name with an 'i' but it's bryan with a 'y.' yeah, since birth. that drives me crazy. yes. it's on all your email. yes. they should know this? yeah. the guy was my brother-in-law. that's ridiculous. well, i happen to know some people.
